Miss Carter: June 2015
We've got a lot to celebrate in Base 3!
Firstly, most of our children have now earned their pens and they are ecstatic about it!...Have a look at the picture to see for yourselves! The small group of children shown have just earned their pen this week. Well done to all of those children who have worked hard on their handwriting, presentation and carefully thinking before writing. They do realise, however, that they must keep up this standard and effort to maintain ownership of their pens! :D
Also, a massive well done to Jasmine and Heather who have received confirmation of their pass (Jasmine) and merit (Heather) results from their ballet exams recently. We are very proud of you!

It is lovely to hear of all the children's ongoing achievements so please keep bringing in your medals, badges, and certificates to show us all.

I was impressed with how well the children used the...
We have been budding scientists this week. After reading our class text 'The Garbage King', we decided that Mamo needed a new mattress as we felt that a straw one probably wasn't that comfy. Before we could even think about making them, we needed to investigate the properties of the materials that we found on the 'garbage dump'. We couldn't make a mattress without...
